  author={Dilek Yıldız and Berna Eren Fidanci and Cengizhan Açikel and Nafiye Kaygusuz and Cansu Yildirim},
Background: The Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale (EBPAS) is a relatively new construct for the study of attitudes toward the adoption of innovation and evidence-based practices (EBPs) in mental health se rvice settings. Despite widespread interest in measuring the attitudes of health care providers in conjuncti on with the adoption of EBPs, no prior research has used the EB PAS with nurses, a different population than that w ith hich the scale was originally developed. Aim: The aim of… Expand

Implementation outcome instruments for use in physical healthcare settings: a systematic review
This systematic review aimed to identify and appraise studies that assess the measurement properties of quantitative implementation outcome instruments used in physical healthcare settings and encouraged further psychometric testing of instruments with promising methodological and psychometric evidence.

Does adoption of an evidence-based practice lead to job turnover? Results from a randomized trial.
The effects of implementation of an EBP on turnover among staff at nine child welfare agencies was examined, and EBP assignment moderated two aspects of negative attitudes toward EBP to predict turnover. Expand


'Validity and reliability of 'Barriers Scale' in utilization of research results by nurses' -
'Evidence-based nursing applications are an important factor in increasing the quality of care. However, studies have shown that nurses do not use research results adequately and they do not haveExpand
Psychometric properties and U.S. National norms of the Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale (EBPAS).
The results suggest that the factor structure and reliability are likely generalizable to a variety of service provider contexts and different service settings and that the EBPAS subscales are associated with provider characteristics. Expand
Readiness of U.S. Nurses for Evidence-Based Practice: Many don’t understand or value research and have had little or no training to help them find evidence on which to base their practice.
Nurses’ perceptions of their access to tools with which to obtain evidence and whether they have the skills to do so are examined, finding that nurses feel much more confident asking colleagues or peers and searching the Internet and World Wide Web than they do using bibliographic databases such as PubMed or CINAHL.

Expanding the Domains of Attitudes Towards Evidence-Based Practice: The Evidence Based Practice Attitude Scale-50
It is found that the convergence of these factors with the four previously identified evidence-based practice attitude factors was small to moderate suggesting that the newly identified factors represent distinct dimensions of mental health and social service provider attitudes toward adopting EBP.

Attitudes toward adoption of EBPs can be reliably measured and vary in relation to individual differences and service context and EBP implementation plans should include consideration of mental health service provider attitudes as a potential aid to improve the process and effectiveness of dissemination efforts.

Confirmatory Factor Analysis of the Evidence-based Practice Attitude Scale (EBPAS) in a Geographically Diverse Sample of Community Mental Health Providers
A confirmatory factor analysis supported the originally derived a priori factor structure of the EBPAS in this new more geographically diverse sample and with a different data collection method. Expand
Nurses' beliefs about the conditions that hinder or support evidence-based nursing.
The aim of this study was to identify the conditions that Australian nurses believe support or hinder the development of evidence-based nursing. A survey instrument was developed from the results ofExpand
Assessing the relationships between contextual factors and research utilization in nursing: systematic literature review.
The strength of the relationship between the six contextual factors and research utilization by nurses is still largely unknown and few studies were found of sufficient quality because of methodological limitations and the results in reviewed studies were mixed. Expand
Evidence-Based in Nursing: Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice
This article will present abrief discussion of EPB in nursing and why it is critical that nurses un-derstand the process of moving to-ward an evidence base for practice. Expand
Nursing implementation science: how evidence-based nursing requires evidence-based implementation.
An analytical, deliberate process of clarifying implementation determinants and choosing strategies is needed to improve situations where suboptimal care exists and use of theory and evidence from implementation science can facilitate evidence-based implementation. Expand
